I was born in Lille, France. I received the M.Eng. degree in Automatic System Engineering from ENSEM (Nancy, France) in 2005 and the M.Sc. degree in Signal Processing from Université Rennes 1 (Rennes, France) in 2006. I received the Ph.D. degree in Engineering Sciences from the KU Leuven (Leuven, Belgium) in June 2011.
From 2011 till 2012 I was a postdoctoral researcher at KU Leuven where I worked on multichannel noise reduction algorithms targeting applications for hearing impaired persons. I was then a postdoctoral researcher at FBK (Trento, Italy, 2013-2014) and at Télécom ParisTech (Paris, France, 2014-2016) where I worked on machine learning applied to speech processing and sound analysis. I am now an Associate Professor with Université de Lorraine (Nancy, France) doing research on robust speech communications and ambient sound detection and classification.
Since 2018, I am the coordinator of DCASE challenge task 4 on “Weakly labeled semi-supervised sound event detection in domestic environments”. Since 2019, I am coordinating the DCASE challenge series together with Annamaria Mesaros.
